Updated the recovery section of the guide to include a full map of the recovery menu. Hopefully that will clear things up!

Very nice write up thank you.
The non-sticking root essentially means that the unrEVOked method will only work when the unrEVOked .apk is present. It just allows you to run programs with root access through some glitch in HTC's security. The ROM itself isn't actually rooted, and you can't use it to do things like access recovery mode.

There isn't one, honestly. You will most likely get Froyo before it drops by rooting, as we already have a nearly functional build right now!

As far as I know, the debug ROM lacks the proper reboot file to actually reboot the phone into recovery from the menu. You can find the fix for this at the end of my guide, but it requires ADB (and most custom ROMs already have it fixed). You will be able to use it in ROMs like Fresh, however. I'm guessing you could successfully install and use ROM Manager, right?
